The offshore oil industry has come under some drastic changes in the last decade: greater safety standards, advanced drilling technology, shifting global production sites, and a heightened sense of environmental protection.
Employees who are new to the offshore oil industry or who are returning from other industrial sectors need to keep abreast of the latest developments.
This program provides an in-depth look to date of this vibrant marine industry. From the North Sea, to the Gulf of Mexico, to the Arctic Seas, to the coasts of Africa, South America and the Far East, this video explores the the ever-changing role of oil and service personnel into the year 2000 and beyond.
